Timeless Design the 2028C Magnifying Mirror

Posted by Debra on 31 October 2012

Hi again its Debra busy times at the moment with stock arrival and everyone getting ready for the festive season

I thought today we could cover a little about a mirror that seems to have been around for a long time  and also copied by many the 2028c scissor arm magnifying mirror. Always popular with it seems an unlikely timeless design. This design reminds us or prompts us to think it’s a mirror you would expect to see in an old hotel in the early 1900s or the local barber shop. The distinctive feature is the scissor arm which extends the magnifying mirror out from the wall.

Having looked at our full range of mirrors I believe it this wall mount mirror will extend out 60cm from the wall which is further than any model on the market – apart from the copies out there. If anyone has purchased a copy from overseas then they soon find out the wall bracket that supports the mirror does not have sufficient strength. Our 2028C wall mount magnifying mirror is of the highest quality with more than enough strength to allow the mirror to extend 60cm and swing from left to right 180 degrees. This mirror itself is double sided and by turning the mirror you can have either 4x magnification for close up attention  or 1x to see that all is in order before you walk out the door.

As always I like to give you the space requirement for the scissor arm magnifying mirror so you can plan the best place to put it. As we know all bathrooms are very different hence the versatility of the scissor arm. This mirror will fold back flat against the wall so its neat and tidy the dimensions are as follows with the unit folded back into the smallest possible configuration  41cm high and 23.5cm. Meaning these are it’s highest and widest points.

Mounting this scissor arm magnifying mirror on the wall is the easiest of all with two screws provided, they should be screwed directly into timber located behind the plaster or if you have a tiled surface then drill the holes and put plastic plugs in then screw your screws into the plugs.
When looking over the website whilst the image is fairly obvious its best to look at the code with the numbers 2028 mean the mirror the C stands for chrome and this mirror is available in G so it will have a G after the code. Both models are made from steel and the surfaces Chrome or Gold are a plated finish.

Because we have had enquiries I need to remind you do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is real glass and can shatter easily should hot water hit the surface or if you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct it can be very dangerous. Broken glass inside a shower cubicle can result in a nasty cut. Also the metal scissor arm will rust. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting when they get wet with shower water everyday.

A normal mounting in a bathroom will see your mirror last for a long time with the only action you need to do is keep you mirror nice and clean which can be done with a soft rag.
The 2028 Scissor Arm magnifying mirror is a quality buy and should last a lifetime.

In the meantime smile Christmas is coming :)

Magnifying Mirror for Travel the MC449N

Posted by Debra on 15 October 2012

Magniying Mirror MC449NHi its Deb again this week I wanted to tell all the ladies about our fantastic magnifying mirror for travel the MC449N it’s a very clever vanity mirror which doubles as a travel mirror also.

We have a lot of customers who bought their wall mounted mirror use it, only to wish they could take their mirror with them when travelling and so they purchase the MC449 magnifying vanity mirror to use just when travelling. The best part about this travel size magnifying mirror is the size.

With a large 14cm diameter mirror and doubled sided magnification being 10 x and 1 x it covers the best of both worlds. Apply makeup insert contact lenses the 10x magnification is in valuable because you can see nearly all of your face without having to move around and to have a quick check that your hair is all in order just flip over to the normal 1x side of the mirror.

The MC449 magnifying Vanity and travel mirror fulfils both roles extremely well because of its design. Being as portable as it is the stand for the mirror is ideal to be set in any position to catch the light or get just the right angle. It can be set high or low in any fashion through the design of the foot on the mirror. Likely the very best part about this MC449 mirror is it can fold down flat and be put in its accompanying velvet bag and be taken with you on holidays. Many of our buyers tell us they never leave home on a trip without.

It’s fairly hard to find a good mirror in accommodation places these days mostly they seem to have poor lighting in the bathroom and rarely do you get a magnifying mirror. Whilst there are other options on the market most of them you need to hold onto with one hand or they don’t fold down or worse still you need to suction them on the wall – they fall down, they leave a mark on the wall or you just forget to take it when you leave.

The MC449 magnifying vanity mirror has a nickel finish and if you have not seen this before it looks like brushed stainless steel. The best part is the nickel finish is it does not show fingermarks making it easy to keep clean. The size when folded down into the velvet bag is perfect and becomes neat and easy to pack in your luggage without taking up to much room. We do advise that when the mirror is folded flat before you pack it away to place a piece of cardboard or small piece of foam between the folding frame and the mirror surface this will prevent breaking or scratching the mirror. 

This MC449n magnifying mirror is brilliant for travelling however is certainly is not out of place on your vanity at home, should your vanity be crowded, then the mirror can be folded down, or folded up and put away in the drawer

In the mean time smile :)  and have a great week.



Vanity Lighted Magnifying Mirror

Posted by Debra on 20 September 2012

Hi everyone once again its Debra again.

It’s hard to imagine mirrors have been in use in one form or another for thousands of years, at first it was just a pool of water, then a piece of polished stone or metal, thankfully today’s mirrors are really clear and very helpful when using a magnifying type of mirror.

Although mirrors are more associated with women, men will use a magnifying mirror also and not just through being conscious of their appearance. There are many good reasons to have a lighted magnifying mirror in your home such as the NGLED410.

Let me explain some of those reasons and why I suggested what basically is the best mirror in our range.
Many people need glasses these days, and with age, the problems only get worse.

Like myself I   suffer from ophthalmic eye issues. The NGLED410 is a 10 times magnifying lighted mirror, it has a clean clear white LED light which is excellent when needing to clean excess oils from the glands in the eyelids. That’s something you need to be very careful with on a daily basis and it’s so easy to damage an eye. The same goes when there is an eyelash that that gets lodged partially in the eyelid.
A 10 times magnifying mirror of this quality can help you see clearly to attend to any issues one might have in this area of personal health. Your normal mirror or one with a lesser magnification will not be good enough for a person with any eye health issues.

Aside from eye health conditions just putting eye liner on or inserting contact lenses in correctly when using this 10x mirror becomes very easy. If you’re a man and you use this mirror to shave with, then I can guarantee you will never miss a stray whisker.

Finally the NGLED410 vanity lighted magnifying mirror is very elegant to look at with the satin nickel finish. It fits right in with any kind of décor, and will certainly stand out as the feature in your bathroom.  Its practicalities are excellent being double sided mirror meaning 10x and 1x normal magnification on the reverse side.
The best part being it’s portable and has duel power arrangement meaning it can be used with just 4 “C” size cell batteries which means you can walk from room to room in your house if needed or just plug it into a power point.

The LED halo light with halo meaning the outer rim of the mirror throws a nice gentle glow on your face really giving you the best benefit as many bathrooms do not have great lighting. All those shadows and strange colors disappear when you use a mirror like this one. This magnifying mirror is halo lighted on both sides.
Just another idea for Christmas I will cover many more over the coming weeks.

In the mean time SMILE  : ) and have a great week

Stress Management or Relaxation Technique ?

Posted by Debra on 13 September 2012

Hello its Debra again
I thought today seeing Christmas is bearing down on us fast to introduce to one of our personal care items from Zadro the Eye and Temple Massager. It does seem these days that    many of us are looking for a new relaxation technique or a stress management action you can take that can be done at home and be effective.

 Does your man or even you come home some nights in a frazzle- the traffic was bad, it was a hard at the office, bad day with the kids? It’s a gift with a difference and has only just come onto the market in the US. Imagine sitting back in your favourite chair at night after a hard day, reach out and put the comfortable mask on, plug in the earphones and you immediately go into a more relaxed mode and another world.
The mask comes with a remote control for you to select the most comforting level of micro vibrations, heat level, and air pressure for what could be termed a facial massage but really focuses on the eye and temple region. Select one of the soothing sound tracks sit back and you will feel the stress just melt away.

A lot of what we perceive in the world is taken in through our eyes and ears, to be able put a mask on and hear the sounds through the earphones just feels brilliant. Blocking out the world and dropping into a deeper level of relaxation with the eye and temple massager is a wonderful tonic.

Well that’s my gift with a difference idea this week; keep it in mind when Christmas comes.

In the mean time smile and have a great week.

Magnified Mirrors with Lights

Posted by Debra on 29 August 2012

 Hi everybody Debra again have had a great week?
This week I wanted to cover some points related to magnifying mirrors with lights.
Enquiries have come in about how bright they are and can a bigger globe be put in to make it brighter. This happens in around one in a hundred sales meaning    it’s important to cover this issue.

The level of light that these halo style – halo meaning the lighting comes from around the edge of the mirror is set by the manufacturer to give the most natural look to your face when using the mirror.

The HL7 and 8 models use a 15 watt globe which does not seem much however in the reflective interior of the mirror it comes out at just the right level.

Having the halo lighting excessively bright will not allow you to get the natural look leading you to  over compensate with makeup to get the right look. End result is your makeup is not what you expect. Likely you finish with some funny looks from others.

Some requests were to put bigger globes in the halo mirrors and they had to turn all the bathroom lights on and it was still not bright enough. That’s more likely and eyesight issue than the mirror lighting level.

The LED power saving halo lighted mirrors has a cold light made up from dozens of small bulbs which give off a stark bluish white color. They are usually brighter than the standard warm white globe models whic hare much friendlier to your face in looks.

This group of mirror HL7C, HL7G, HL75C, HL8 are all halo light magnifying mirrors with a friendly warm white globe.

There are just two in the LED group NGLED410 and the NGLED45 which have halo lighting and use the stark bluish white smaller energy efficient globes to light up your face. 

I hope that information is of use to you.

In the mean time smile and have a great week
